Being ill suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks. There, that is the extent of moaning about that I am going to allow myself today on here.

I’m really enjoying writing ATM at the moment, but I do have a slight concern in the back of my mind. See, it’s great, and it’s gonna help with editing a lot, but I really do want to find a way to get comfortable counting uni work towards target. Like, it absolutely should count, and I fully intended it to, but then I was like “AAAA what if I stop writing stories??” so I caved and started writing even more. And I’m not saying that’s why my health collapsed, but you know by now as a long time imaginary reader what I’m gonna cite:

1K+ lives in infamy as the time I went “Hey you know this great approach to sustainable productivity you developed? Let’s triple the output at random for no good reason.” Uni work, more specifically uni notes, often come to well in excess of target. This is just 1K+, and I need to fix it. If I don’t, these burnouts will happen more often and I won’t be eyeing a 1st, I’ll be eyeing a hospital bed. Only problem is, I have no idea how to do that, and also meet my needy brain’s needs for target, to, be…

Why am I not just saying uni can count up to 500 words?

No seriously why not? On non uni days you get a full 1K but otherwise? Yeah, screw it, that’s how I make this work. Or try to. Watch this space. It might be a while because am sick.
